Picture Segment Description
COLD OPEN What's the Word on the Street?: Laundromat
SCENE At the new Sesame Street laundromat, Chris welcomes the viewer as he does his laundry. He says he loves the noises the washing machines make (singing a variation of "The Wheels on the Bus"), while an Anything Muppet lady disagrees with him.

He folds his clothes, then notices he's got one missing sock (all the rest of his socks are in pairs). He wonders where his sock went, when Abby Cadabby poofs into view. He shows her the one sock he has which is missing its match, and she proceeds to show him the trick she was going to show Elmo: her "Two Trick," which involves turning one thing into two. With a spell, a talking sock appears, but it doesn't look anything like Chris's striped sock - this one has polka dots and is pink.


The talking sock decides to take a dip in the "pool" (a washing machine), and Abby tries another trick, the "More Trick," which will make more socks. With more poofs, a Scottish-accented argyle sock appears, then a gym sock, then a baseball sock, and finally a baby sock. The five talking socks start running amok around the laundromat, confusing Chris. Elmo comes into the laundromat and joins Abby and the socks in doing the "Five Sock Conga."


The socks go looking for Chris's missing sock, when the lady comes back with that very sock (which somehow ended up in her laundry basket). Chris finally has all his laundry done, and is ready go home - but now the socks want to follow him home as they conga!

Muppets / Animation Abby's Flying Fairy School
The class plays with Niblet, the class pet. It’s Gonnigan’s turn to hold him, but he’s to afraid to and disappears. Blogg then tries to and Niblet steals his wand. After a chase, he runs into a crayon drawing n the wall. However, they are unable to get inside. Spot shows them videos of doors, which gives them the idea to use a door. After twinkle-thinking, Abby realizes the drawing is Gonnigan’s and he can draw a door on it. Once inside, they try and follow him, but he draws a river between them. Abby draws a pumpkin to get them across, but Gonnigan adds a sail. Once on the river, Niblet re-draws it as the top of a mountain. Gonnigan adds wheels to get down to him, but Niblet draws a second hill, causing them to slide back and forth between them. Niblet escapes the drawing and heads into his Gerblecorn hole. They try opening it with a spell (rhyming “door” with “Zsa Zsa Gabor”), but find out magic can’t open it. They sob at the idea of never seeing Niblet again, which brings him out of his hole. He gives Blogg his wand back and has Gonnigan hold him. Mrs. Sparklenose rewards them (and the viewer) with a gold star.
